By KELI JACOBI News-Times Staff The Union County Sheriff indicated on Friday that his office is in the preliminary stages of investigating a fire that engulfed the home of Will and Lucy Williams of Strong and ravaged four cars and a nearby mobile home on Thursday.
"We are in the early stages of the investigation, so there’s honestly not much to tell," said Union County Sheriff Ken Jones.
"But we do want to look further into it just to rule out any chance of foul play."
Firefighters from the Huttig, Lawson-Urbana and Strong Fire Departments battled high winds Thursday as they responded to the blaze on G Street in Strong. There were no victims or injuries as a result of the fire.
